So this has been in the works for a while now, believe it or not -- the first true iPlayWinner tier list! This whole project was directed by Ryan "Filipino Champ" Ramirez as he contacted many top players across the country (Justin Wong, Floe, Marn, John Choi, Ricky Ortiz, Keno, Tatsu -- the list goes on and on, it really does) to get their input on certain match ups -- so rest assured this isn't just one players opinion! We finished punching in all the data and getting it organized a couple days ago and here it is for everyone's viewing pleasure!
On the right you'll see the different ranks for all the characters, and on the left you can click the image to see the match up chart to get an idea on how they got there.
A: Abel, Dictator, Ryu, Chun Li, Boxer, E. Honda
B+: Zangief, Ibuki, Sagat, Guile, Blanka
B: Cammy, T. Hawk, Juri, El Fuerte, Dhalsim, Ken, C. Viper
C+: Seth, Fei Long, DeeJay, Cody, Dudley, Adon, Gouken, Rose
C: Gen, Claw, Guy, Hakan
D: Makoto, Sakura, Dan
Now, the idea here is we will continue to update this tier list each month based on the opinions of top players around the world. So, don't be surprised if you see things change up a bit over the next couple months as more players learn about the new characters and strategies with the current cast.

Since there has been a lot of debate on the tiers, we've gone ahead and added an Official Match Up Consultant list so you guys can get a better idea who is actually looking everything over. Again, this tier list is not the opinion of one player -- it's a community effort to get a fair representation of North American Super Street Fighter 4 tiers.
Right now players who are currently contributing to and managing the data is as follows:
Long "Shady K" Tran
Ari "Floe" Weintraub
